The word 'Pratt' is used as a surname and also as a name for a male child. The word has been taken probably from the Old English and may refer to the buttocks as used in the embarrassing term 'a pratfall'. Some people also believe that it has been taken from the word 'prate' which is an old fashioned word to convey the idea of talking too much which is annoying and boring.

There are some other names that can be considered as the same as that of 'Pratt', Brett, Britt, Porat and Pruitt are some of these names.

The word 'Pratt' is seldom used as the name of a person and usually the word is used as a surname only. One of the famous personalities with this surname is the Canadian poet Edwin John Dove Pratt.
